1. [A] word like autonomy, which many of us have used and liked, may need revamping for women. It carries the implication - and for women therefore the threat - that one should be able to pay the price of giving up affiliations in order to become a separate and self-directed individual.

    Women are quite validly seeking something more complete than autonomy as it is defined for men, a fuller not a lesser ability to encompass relationships to others, simultaneous with the fullest development of oneself.

    – Jean Baker Miller, Toward a New Psychology of Women (Beacon Press, 1976), pp. 94-5
